Rosedale-Kilmany captain Brad Scott scored 76 against Collegians last weekend.

FOUR teams beginning their innings on Saturday in Sale-Maffra cricket will have challenging targets to chase.

Three of four teams batting first last weekend saw out their 80 overs, while Sale was only a ball short of matching them.

Boisdale-Briagolong will have a biggest chase at home, after Stratford scored 9-318.

The fourth-placed Redbacks could find themselves in third spot tomorrow night if they win and Maffra loses to Sale.

Maffra, currently third, has been set a target of 281 by second-placed Sale.

A big effort from the Eagles will be needed to keep them in the hunt for a home semi-final.

Despite being on top, Collegians will need to be aware of the dangers Rosedale-Kilmany’s bowling attack can provide.

Collegians is in form, having piled on 410 during the previous two-day round against Maffra.

Six points outside the top four, the Warriors made 9-230 at home. With Stratford in good position against Boisdale-Briagolong, victory is vital for RK if it’s to make the finals

Longford is in a position to record its fourth win of the season after making 8-240 against Bundalaguah at Stephenson Park.

The Lizards will need their bowlers to back-up the batsmen’s efforts, while Bundalaguah will be playing to ensure the Lizards don’t overtake it on the table.
